Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50246007
  • Date: 1 March 2010
  • Public Authority: Serious Fraud Office
  • Summary: The complainant requested information relating to fraud in landed property. The Serious Fraud Office initially refused to disclose the information, citing section 21 (information accessible by other means) and section 31(1)(a) (law enforcement). In its internal review correspondence it referred to section 12 (cost of compliance exceeds appropriate limit). The Commissioner is satisfied that it would exceed the cost limit for the Serious Fraud Office to comply with the request. However he identified procedural shortcomings on the part of the public authority relating to its provision of advice and assistance and in relation to its citing of section 12.
